Reviews for Green Chile Chicken Chili

"This chili is delicious! A bit of caution though. If I had used a whole cup of the sliced pickled jalape?os, I would have had to throw it out. I used about 1/4C and it was still really hot; I had to use two cups of sour cream to cool it down. I used boneless chicken breast any it worked perfectly."
"Great flavors and texture throughout this recipe. One or two of the breasts fell apart during cooking and left a lot of little bones for a potentially unsafe meal. Never use bone in for something that does not have a clear broth and I'll use boneless breast or thigh next time."
"Very good but next time when I half the recipe I'll remember to half the jalapeños!"
"wonderful chicken chili!"
"This is one delicious chicken chili! I used boneless skinless chicken breasts and sauted the veggies in a little oil before I put them in the crockpot. I cooked in on low for 3 hours, any longer and the chicken would have been overdone in my crockpot. I omitted the jalape?os since my husband doesn't like spicy foods, but it didn't matter, the salsa verde was too hot for him anyway (The only kind I could find was "medium" heat). Next time, if I can't find a mild salsa verde, I will see if they have a mild green enchilada sauce. We topped the chili with cheese and crushed tortilla chips,"
